Ross Honored for Promoting Civic Education
“All across the Commonwealth, I have met young Kentuckians who exhibit the values of good citizenship and are enthusiastic about moving Kentucky forward,” said Grimes. “I know that behind them are unsung heroes who have invested their own talents and energy into the success of Kentucky and its youth. This award is a great opportunity to recognize those individuals for their outstanding work.”
The Kentucky Outstanding Civic Education Leadership Award recognizes teachers, school administrators, legislators and community leaders who have made notable contributions toward promoting or implementing civic learning to prepare students to be active and engaged in their communities.
Each finalist received a plaque and was recognized at center court of Rupp Arena, thanks to the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA Boys’ Sweet Sixteen Basketball Tournament organizers. In addition, awards and prizes were made possible by the contest’s co-sponsors, the Kentucky Administrative Office of the Courts and Kentucky Department of Education.
